Limb length discrepancy

Specialty of Orthopaedic surgery

Lower limb dysmetria occurs when one leg is longer than another. It can occur on the whole limb, thigh or foot. When the difference is less than one centimetre it is considered normal. However, there may be uneven growth caused by congenital malformations, syndromes, trauma, or some childhood diseases.
